    Pros

    Many different ICUs, floors and clinical areas to work. You'll learn and see a lot here. Some of the most brilliant doctors work there, diverse environment.

    Cons

    Some interdepartmental and intradepartmental issues, just like anywhere else.

    Pros

    Intelligent people. Creme de la creme education and learning opportunities. State of the art med/surg development.

    Cons

    Poor nurse leadership overall. NPs are in a more traditional hierarchical role w/ MDs vs working as leaders of a team.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen the nurse leadership.

    Pros

    Staff receive four weeks of vacation time immediately upon hire.

    Cons

    One of the worst hospitals to work for. Culture that incessantly breeds no breaks, overtime spent working with patients without extra pay, and telling on your colleagues for all their mistakes. Management does not have your best interest. Money is the only driving factor. Medicine coincidentally is a component to this service based institution. It's a deprecating place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time and resources to achieve magnet status. Start caring about your staff.

    Pros

    Working at New York Presbyterian has been an amazing experience. It's a good job to have throughout college because they work with your schedule and make it able for you to do both of you have to. Also they are willing to work with you if you would like to get some extra hours here and there.

    Cons

    The biggest con I feel there is working at this particular hospital is that some of the coworkers aren't mature. Many times people's personal feelings and emotions make it difficult to work with on a professional level.


  8. Great Environment

    Pros

    Everyone is willing to help each other out once you get to know your collegues. You get a sense of a close knit community.

    Cons

    Food at the cafe could be better.

    Pros

    Major goal is to put patients first. Is very proactive in improving the environment and focusing on Patient Centered Care

    Cons

    Staff members who have held same position for so long and have done nothing to upgrade themselves bring a lot of negative energy to the units. Managers' power taken away on some aspects from Union employees. They are able to get away with a lot of behavior that would never be tolerated at other major institutions

    Advice to Management

    Consider 12 hour shifts for Techs and NA's. They are currently having to work 5 days a week doing a lot of physical work and many of them are just plain burned out. The "sick" call out rate is rediculous. Many times the call out is only because they are tired and worn down.
